Chicken Chow Mein

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by cookee monster

This recipe comes from a cookbook called Cooking for Today Simple Chinese Recipes. The recipe says that you can use pork in place of chicken and to use Chinese egg noodles. I also add more green beans and have never used the chili sauce.

Very simple but delicious recipe. You can change it up by using pork instead of chicken, or throw in julienned carrots, green beans or any combination of veggies you like. It's very good hot, but I like it even more as a cold dish.
